I reviewed the Sheraton Grand London Club Lounge during my stay last week. It also features in my review of the best club lounges in London’s luxury hotels and I have reviewed the Sheraton Grand Park Lane separately.
The Sheraton Grand Club Lounge can be found just to the right of the foyer of the Sheraton Grand at the back of the hotel, by the Brick street entrance. It is split into two lounges plus a meeting room with a large conference table and chairs.
The colour scheme is autumnal with browns and burnt reds. There is no view, as it sits at the base of the building, so the windows offering natural light are curtained with nets. Within the lounge, there are plenty of comfy tables and chairs, booths with small sofas, as well as a computer area with two computers and a printer. At one end is a large sofa in front of a TV that would be ideal for kids to watch cartoons or adults to watch a sports event. While we were there, this area remained unoccupied.
The lighting in the lounge is fun, with big drum-style lights in the ceiling. The carpet has a Deco style zebra pattern.
This lounge provides everything you could possibly need from a club lounge including plenty of seating as it was never full, kind staff bringing you drinks and nibbles, breakfast, afternoon tea and evening light bites and a place to escape to do work or relax outside your room.
The breakfast offering includes warm pancakes and eggs benedict in heater trays. Cereal, jams, loafs and buns that could be toasted, some fruit and yoghurt. There was also a tray of smoked fish and cold continental meats. Drinks include an array of juices and coffees and teas. The spread is nowhere near as extensive as the buffet in the main restaurant, but is more than sufficient as long as you are happy with poached eggs. There were no alternate egg options or warm sausages or bacon when we were visiting, but when we asked the staff, they brought us some scrambled egg from the main restaurant for my son, so there seemed some flexibility on what you could request within reason, which is a very nice touch.
Afternoon tea is also offered in the lounge, which is a small selection tasty patisseries and cakes along with drinks.
In the evening there are light bits (which we did not try) and plenty of alcoholic options (beers and wines).
Overall this lounge is a nice space to waste an hour or two and offers enough food to keep hunger at bay. You can grab a complimentary beer or glass of wine in the Club Lounge but I felt that the central foyer of the hotel with it’s impressive and stylish bar area and live music (a harp player when we were staying in the hotel) was a more lively and enjoyable place to spend the evening.
Overall this hotel ticks all the boxes and you can read my full review of the Sheraton Grand Park Lane in London separately.
